In a surprising turn of events, Joe Biden lost the American Samoa Democratic primary to relatively unknown candidate Jason Palmer, marking the first time an incumbent president has lost a primary since Jimmy Carter in 1980. While Biden had a successful night overall, winning several other primaries across the U.S., Palmer's victory in American Samoa added a touch of unpredictability to the Super Tuesday results.

Out of the 91 ballots cast, Palmer, a Maryland resident, garnered 51 votes compared to Biden's 40, securing four delegates to Biden's two. American Samoa, a small U.S. territory in the South Pacific, played a significant role in this unexpected outcome.

Palmer, who self-funded his campaign with over $500,000, emphasized the need for a fresh perspective in American politics, urging Biden to pass the torch to the younger generation. He criticized Biden's focus on Trump and foreign policy, advocating instead for a clear, positive agenda that resonates with voters.

While Trump celebrated his victories on Super Tuesday, Biden remained steadfast in his commitment to defeating Trump and defending democracy, highlighting the importance of each generation's role in shaping the political landscape. The upcoming Hawaii Democratic Party primary and the National Convention in Chicago will further shape the road to the 2024 presidential candidacy.
